    Colonial Quito

    4.5
    17 reviews

    I could spend hours walking around the cobblestone streets of Quito's "old town" historic district. Apparently this area used to be a pretty scary place not so long ago, but it seems like they've really made an effort to crack down on crime and clean things up. The architecture will make you feel like you're stepping back in time, and ...

    La Mitad del Mundo

    4
    24 reviews

    Want to have your picture taken with one leg in each hemisphere (north/south)? This is the place to do it! Several miles north of Quito lies this monument to the equator, on the equator. And in a country named for the equatorial line that bisects it, it seems more than an appropriate stopover. Although a bit of a tourist attraction, ...

    Iglesia La Compañía

    10 reviews

    A friend told me to stop by this place, and WOW! The ornate interior carvings and niches for saints, and the altar and most of the ceiling are covered in gold leaf--50-52 kilos according to the folks who take your $3 at the door. An absolutely amazing church. By the way, the picture shown with this review is of some ...

    San Francisco Church

    4.5
    11 reviews

    This is one of my favorite places to visit in Quito. For lack of a better word, it is "amazing". I've never been a big fan of touring old churches, but this one stands alone. It is immense, imposing and carries this strange aura of mystery and hidden secrets. It is also still an operating church, popular with old Quito's ...

    Quicentro

    4.5
    7 reviews

    Just two blocks away from my apartment is the Quicentro Mall! Perhaps, the best mall of all Quito. It is quite, attractive, elegant and charming! Aside from shopping, the Mall has great places to eat. The Patio de Comidas (Food court) has plenty to choose from. We love the exclusive “Noe Sushi Bar”! You might also enjoy the Peruvian Restaurant ...

    Plaza de la Independencia

    4.5
    7 reviews

    I liked the Plaza de la Independencia much better than I liked the palacio de la gobierno. When I was there, there were protests (against the current communist, pro-chavez government) in the Plaza, and there were snarling security forces everywhere. I felt very uncomfortable here, kind of like most people would feel in visiting Chavezes Venezuela.

    El Panecillo Hill and Momument

    4
    7 reviews

    It's worth heading to the El Panecillo just to see how big it actually is. You can see it from almost anywhere in the city, but you don't get a real sense of scale until you actually visit. To be honest, I went there at night and it felt a little shady. I would never go in the evening without ...

    Avenida Amazonas

    4
    5 reviews

    If you're staying in la mariscal, Amazonas is a slightly quieter alternative to Plaza Foch and the surrounding streets. I was a fan of the less crowded cafes with outdoor seating. I also frequented the bootleg dvd shops. Every sunday morning they shut down traffic so that cyclists can take over the avenue. They'll occasionally close down the street for ...

    Guagua Pichincha

    4.5
    3 reviews

    An immense, stunningly beautiful active stratovolcano rising right out of the city of Quito. Guagua - meaning "baby" is the younger of two peaks on Pichincha Volcano, the older peak referred to as Rucu. Lacking the glacial covering of many of Ecuador's massive volcanoes, Pichchincha is a highly accessible peak, even possible as a day hike from the city.

    Mall El Jardin

    It's embarrassing to admit, but I used to head to El Jardin when I was homesick and just wanted to be in air conditioning in a nice, clean, modern environment. It's also where I used to go for my McDonalds fix (is it me or are fast food places SO much nicer in S. America than they are in the ...
